This is wonderful. I love this list, especially the fruits and vegetables.

However, some people should be careful. Your list contains all of the 8 highly allergic foods:
Wheat
Soy
Fish
Shellfish
Tree nuts
Peanuts
Dairy
Egg

However, for people without allergies, this is an excellent diet.

I like your list! I could seriously live on the first two alone. Fruit and vegetables. . . mmmmm, I'm craving an orange. I always feel so much better eating natural foods than processed stuff. Like a grapefruit vs. a Nutrigrain bar for breakfast. Pure, simple, straight-from-the-earth foods always taste great and make me feel so healthy!

That's a few more than 10 isn't it?

I think most people would agree that those foods are generally healthy and our diets should consist mainly of natural, unprocessed foods.

Surely it's a minority who are allegic to these foods and if they are, they would already know not to eat them.

StirBlue, since you like that grocery list and would like recipes, then check out Ellie Krieger's book "Small Changes, Big results" she has excellent points and great recipes sprinkle throughout the book. Her website is elliekrieger.com. It has recipes in each newsletter on there. She is on Food Network too. Her show is called Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger. I find her recipes, tips and advice refreshing for a healthy appetite.
